Residents lead the way on the future of solid waste in Sugar Land

The Solid Waste Task Force, a resident group appointed by Sugar Land City Manager Michael W. Goodrum to develop recommendations for the future of solid waste and recycling in Sugar Land, is asking all residents – regardless of whether they are part of the task force or not – for their opinions on the solid waste program in the city.

“The Solid Waste Task Force was created to provide an opportunity for residents to guide the future of solid waste,” City of Sugar Land Environmental Manager Georgia Tate said. “(It) was created to help us develop guiding principles that city staff and City Council can use to develop and implement solid waste and recycling programs now and in the future.”

Residents can participate in an online town hall survey to provide feedback on the future priorities of Sugar Land’s solid waste program.

Residents can participate in the online town hall survey following these steps:

  1. Click this link: www.sugarlandtx.gov/SWRSurvey
  2. Take Survey.
  3. Register your response (optional).

After resident feedback is given, the Solid Waste Task Force will use the identified goals to determine strategies and make a recommendation to the city regarding trash and recycling service levels that should be included in the city’s next solid waste contract.

Select households will also receive a statistically-valid survey distributing questions created by the Solid Waste Task Force to gauge true resident sentiment on the solid waste program in Sugar Land.

“Residents shouldn’t live in a vacuum,” Jack Molho, who has lived in Sugar Land for 37 years, said. “We are blessed to have folks that represent us because they truly represent us as a community. That’s why it’s important for them to fill out the survey and tell us what they really want.”
